My Brian always did things his way. He loved Football, and he was awesome at playing football. Bryan quit Football one month before graduation. We did not know he was doing these hard drugs. I think he thought he could handle anything. This was an accidental overdose.
Bryan would help anyone that needed help. Many times when I tried to talk to Bryan he would say, "Mom, I am OK", then he would get up and leave. He lived at home but worked many hours.
Bryan was the forth child out of five children. All of his friends called him "Maz", short for Maslinski. He and his 26 year old brother had tattoos that say "Maz" put on their backs two weeks before Bryan died.
I will never get over this. Bryan was only 21 years old and he had so much life left to live.
Bryan was a loving caring man.
